Tools such as multi-threaded data race detectors, memory bounds checkers, dynamic type analyzers, data flight recorders, and various performance profilers are becoming increasingly vital aids to software developers. Rather than performing all the instrumentation and analysis on the main processor, we exploit the fact that increasingly high-throughput board level interconnect is available on many systems, a fact we use to offload analysis to an off-chip accelerator. We characterize the potential… CONTINUE READING
